Rajon Rondo was on the Celtics flight to Washington for their game on Sunday afternoon against the Wizards and has not been ruled out yet. Per a team spokeman, Rondo will be a game time decision with a sprained right wrist.
The All-Star guard injured his wrist on Wednesday late in the third quarter against Toronto when he took a hard fall after a Flagrant-1 foul from Linas Kleiza. He left the game with the Celtics comfortably ahead and didn't play on Friday in a 79-71 loss to the Suns that saw the Celtics record their lowest point-total of the season.
All 15 players were on the flight including Keyon Dooling who has missed the last five game with a knee injury and Chris Wilcox who has been out four games with a strained left calf.

Bruins forward Marc Savard, who is out for the season with post-concussion syndrome, made a rare appearance at TD Garden Saturday to unveil the suite he recently bought for patients dealing with head trauma at Children's Hospital.
Savard has been plagued with head issues since receiving a blindside hit to the head from Penguins forward Matt Cooke on March 7, 2010. A routine hit from Matt Hunwick on Jan. 22, 2011 ended his campaign last season, and it was announced prior to this season that he would not play. Savard said Saturday the chances of him ever playing again might be slim.
"Right now, the way I’m still feeling and the daily issues I’m having, it’s tough to see a bright future right now, to be honest with you," he said. "It’s tough. I still have my tough days that I want to get back and play, but at the end of the day, I know if I possibly got hit again, what could happen. It’s a day...
According to CSNNE.com, Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco boarded a plane headed for Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Friday night. The report was unable to say whether the wide receiver will be available for the AFC championship game on Sunday against the Ravens (particularly given the possible disruption to travel to and from New England as a result of snow).
A Patriots source told the website that it was possible that Ochocinco was traveling for his father's funeral. On Monday, Ochocinco wrote on twitter:
"Please send your prayers n condolences to my older and youngest brothers. ... Our father passed this morning."
One day later, again on twitter, the wide receiver wrote:
"It's almost been 24hrs since my dad passed."
Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, in a session at the World Baseball and Softball Coaches' Convention at Mohegan Sun Arena, deemed the consumption of beer and fried chicken in the clubhouse during games "inexcusable," and said (in comments relayed by The Day (New London, Conn.)) that it would not happen during his tenure as manager.
In response to a question about the clubhouse consumption of beer and chicken during games, Valentine initially joked, "We've got to go to draft beer and grilled chicken, I think," before approaching the matter with less levity.
"If that happened it's inexcusable," said Valentine. "I apologize for that. The apologies are out there and it will never happen on my watch."
